Introduction

When the EDI Campus Committee was first formed in the 2016/17 academic year, one of the work streams highlighted was the inclusion of LGBT+ staff and students. The committee agreed to hold networking events to review interest and build a programme of work once feedback and engagement were developed.  Following successful events in 2017, the developments on campus led to increased awareness of the LGBT+ community and buy-in to form an LGBT+ Staff Network. The work to provide an inclusive and welcoming environment for all staff and students is ongoing and will continue to be led by both the EDI Campus Committee and the LGBT+ Staff Network through events, initiatives, and policy development.
